Commtact launches HiveComm data link family
Wireless communications provider Commtact has launched its HiveComm datalink family, a suite of systems for use on air, sea and land platforms.
The family of datalinks includes technology that can be incorporated into OEM products, as well as tactical ruggedised units and ground end stations.
‘We are happy to introduce the HiveComm for the first time ‒ a new generation of SDR [software defined radio] wireless advanced datalink solutions providing secured IP connectivity and high-end performance in ever-changing operational environments, combined with leading proprietary and combat-proven technologies,’ Ariel Kandel, CEO of Commtact, said.
‘We are continuously engaged in the development of solutions that enable our customers to enjoy flexible, open architecture, secured, robust communications solutions under the most challenging conditions, ensuring continuous high data rate transmission between platforms or users.’
HiveComm is an SDR system designed to provide full duplex digital communications, enabling a data transmission of 40Mbps.
It combines multiple-input and multiple-output technology for improved reliability and performance in a multipath environment, as well as unique algorithms for encryption and secure communications, while advanced error correction techniques and algorithms increase datalink robustness and reliability.
HiveComm has an adaptive modem, the AiMoTM, delivering a smart modem algorithm that optimises the SDR for better performance, and this operates either single carrier or multi-carrier modulation, providing the operator with the required operational flexibility.
Networking is facilitated by Commtact’s mobile ad hoc network system, HiveNet, a self-forming/self-healing, ad-hoc, multi-hop mesh network.
Using Commtact’s Amadeus real-time HD video encoder, real-time multi-transmission from several different payloads at low latency can be carried out.
